Default TI for stroke (cerebrovascular accident) rehab?

A relative recently suffered a hemiparetic stroke, meaning he is weak but not paralyzed on one side of his body (the right). He now walks with minimal support and is able to use his right hand for gross activities though has difficulty with activity like writing or typing that requires fine coordination. No significant problem with understanding or verbalizing. He is frustrated by his loss of function and has no physical outlet. I'm wondering if there is any role for TI, with close supervision and in a shallow pool to start of course, for both rehab and as a physical outlet. Anyone have experience with TI as stroke rehab or adaptive swimming techniques?
